coping with infertility Rss

It makes me so sad to see a section in baby forums called 'life without a child'. It is so depressing. I sympathize with all those people. But I also want to help them. I have been where they are right now. I don't want them to make peace with it. It is important to fight with your infertility. I did, I had my son through surrogacy. It changed my life. What's stopping them?
I guess there might be some serious issues stopping them. And the most widely spread one is money sums expected to be paid for treatments. I'm happy for you and all your new family. and that surrogacy route brought you luck. But I'm sure not everyone can afford this. like ivf or some other treatment option. Then I read too often ladies are confused of using donor eggs (when their dr thinks it's just the high time for using them). Others have their second halves unsupportive and don't want to take risks being left with a baby in the end. Yet others tell their dhs don't want to use donor sperms, so they cannot go for treatments. All the cases are different. Some get their issues nailed and look for ways out. Others don't have the opportunity or just don't want to. Who knows?! The thing is that you're here with your success story which must inspire those who are struggling desperately for. Thank you for sharing.
Hello. Thank you for reading my post. you put forth some very good point. I feel so bad for such people. I really wish they could do something about it. Everyone deserves a child. I try to help as many people out as possible so they can experience parenthood too. Trust me, I know how it feels to be childless.

It does pain much to see all those people struggling. Although, I am not happy any of us are experiencing this heartache, I appreciate the support of people going/have gone through the same thing. I have to believe that the heartache we are experiencing now will make us more appreciative of it all when we do become mothers. We are all here for some kind words and encouragement to not be so hard on ourselves. No blaming. No judging. Prayers to all!
Hi. I completely agree with you. That's how it should be. And this forum helps us with that. Things were really hard for me a couple of years ago. I was dealing with the paperwork as I had applied for a surrogacy program at this clinic. I only had their staff and my husband by my side then. I got so much support here on this forum. This is what I want to do to. I want to be there for people who are currently going through the same thing. I'm there if they need help with anything related to this. I'd be happy to help them out with their questions, confusions, recommendations and stuff. I hope it works out for them as it did for me. Thank you for your comment here. I really appreciate it.
Yes it can be indeed very hard to deal with this sort of a trauma. I am still however, very hopeful because of the various treatments that are available. I think people should try their best and never give up. I am now visiting a clinic that is really trying their best to make things work. I am really hoping for the best. The services they are providing are excellent. The doctors also have the skills to perform task. Sending baby dust to all trying.
Agree. Going through IVF is stressful and complicated. Having any additional layer of stress is definitely not ideal while doing this. I am not sure if estrogen can cause anxiety. But your body and mind is going through a ton. I had definitely had extra anxiety since starting fertility treatments. But now I am having a ton of anxiety currently being off all of it! My body likes to wake me up around 4am and play things out like a movie for me – lol. The only things I can offer that might help calm your brain a bit is doing yoga. Writing on here to people. Also writing in general. I have notebooks and word docs readily available for when I just feel like I'm going to explode but have no one to speak to. I think too accepting that its ok to feel this way is helpful. To remind yourself that it's ok to be freaked and overwhelmed and to not feel guilty for that. Lastly, it's not for everyone, but possibly going to see a counselor is also a good option before making mind around the further treatments.

Good for you! I'm so proud of you for not giving up. Tell us more about your clinic. It would help out people here come to know about the treatments they are providing and at what costs. We need to spread awareness about this. So more people can benefit from this. Good luck with your journey though.
Just wanted to add. Accupuncture does help to relieve stress!! Acupuncture is relatively harmless. Moreover, there aren’t many documented side effects and it is considered safe when performed by an experienced practitioner using sterile needles. Acupuncture is very relaxing for most people and can lower stress levels. While it’s unclear if stress significantly affects fertility, acupuncture can help cope with the stress of trying to conceive, which some have compared to the stress experienced by patients with cancer or heart disease. But while there might not be any physical cons, acupuncture can be very expensive. If you’re thinking of pursuing acupuncture as a treatment for infertility, make sure you see a traditional fertility specialist first, so that you have a comprehensive understanding of what your fertility issues are. My advice is to ask your doctor to refer you to a trained and licensed acupuncturist for a consultation. Just tried to be helpful. All the best.
 
It takes a lot of courage to accept reality. Doing something about it requires more. A lot of people don't know about how these procedures are made affordable for us know. They need awareness about this stuff. They need encouragement and support too. I try to be there for people in similar situations. Because I know what it is like.
@Cathymccartney098, you've been blessed to get your dear boy after all the strugglings. There are lots of reasons why a fertility clinic might be a good choice. Let's say you're having trouble getting pregnant, and so far your gynecologist has given you advice. Maybe he's run a blood test for hormones. or asked you to record your BBT for a couple of months. At the same time, your dh has been checked out by a urologist. When it comes time to diagnose the problem and suggest solutions, you may wish there were a single doctor you both could see. That's where the infertility specialist comes in. you did your choice, and it turned out to be your greatest success!! smile Where did you pass surrogacy??
